Contemporary Artist Leah Tinari

I have worked days researching Leah Tinari, she captivated me with her lines and use of color. I have found that she has an unusual optimisim about the characters her in her work which I feel is really really suprising. However considering they are her friends and family, can you blame her? From what I researched she has not done art for years. She recently opened a resturant named FATTA CUCKOO, I hope that she finds a herself being re inspired to do art that is more relevant to todays popular culture. I would love to see it! Here is a extremely comprehensive compliation of her work, seriously took me hrs to find!

my favorite of her work, she just captures character
